PARCC Mathematical Assessments


How do the math assessments change with PARCC –
·      Type I (PBA and EOY): Machine scorable, focusing on major content
·      and/or fluency. Could be practice forward. (NOT selected response type of questions). These questions will get at conceptual understanding. The End of Year will be all Type I
·      Type II (PBA): Hand scored (or machine scored if innovative); focused on expressing mathematical reasoning.
·      Type III (PBA): Hand scored (or machine scored if innovative); focused on modeling/application of mathematics
